script of High School and/or other academic records. An appli- 
cant enrolled as a student at another school of music or studying 
with a private teacher will be considered for an audition or 
examination only if the application form is accompanied by 
written permission from the school or teacher. 

Requests for the return by mail of personal property that has 
been submitted with the application form should be accompanied 
by the necessary postage. 

Auditions are scheduled on dates set aside for each subject

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS — Continued 
Qualifications for Audition or Examination 

The qualifications for receiving an audition or examination are 
presented here in a general form, allowing the applicant latitude 
in the selection of works to be presented. While the choice of 
composition is important, the manner of performance carries far 
greater weight. 

The final decision as to the suitability of an applicant for ac- 
ceptance rests upon the evidence of talent shown rather than 
upon the degree of advancement already attained. Admission is 
limited to those whose inherent musical gift shows promise 
of development to a point of professional quality. 

Applicants in any subject may be asked to show the degree of 
their attainments in sight-reading. A supplementary knowledge 
of the piano, or other medium, and of the theory of music, 
is desirable. 

The auditors are not obliged to hear all that an applicant may 
have in readiness nor to comply with requests for criticism of 
applicants not accepted.

the character, quality, and personality of voice and singer, of 
which one at least should be in English. They should be chosen

Centuries; French songs (either of the 'Bergerette' type or of 
the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries); English songs of any 
period which have artistic merit.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 

Application for Audition or Examination 

Students are accepted only after an audition or the examination 
of original compositions submitted. The qualifications for audi- 
tion or examination are given on the following pages. 

The applicant is required to fill out an application form and to 
give in detail all requested information. The application form 
must be accompanied by a physician's certificate of health, tran- 
script of High School and or other academic records. An appli- 
cant enrolled as a student at another school of music or studying 
with a private teacher will be considered for an audition or 
examination only if the application form is accompanied by 
written permission from the school and/or the private teacher. 

Requests for the return by mail of personal property that has 
been submitted with the application form should be accompanied 
by the necessary postage. 

Auditions are scheduled on dates set aside for each subject 
when faculty members are available, and requests for changes 
in appointments cannot be considered. 

School Year 1966-1967 

Auditions will be scheduled in March, April and May 1966, for 
those Departments in which there are vacancies to be filled. 

Everyone requesting an audition should send for an application 
form stating his or her major subject and age. This application form 
will be released after December 15, 1965 and must be completed 
and returned with supporting documents on or before February 15, 
1966. 

All communications should be addressed to 

The Secretary of Admissions

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS — Continued 
Qualifications for Audition or Examination 

The qualifications for receiving an audition or examination are 
presented here in a general form, allowing the applicant latitude 
in the selection of works to be presented. While the choice of 
composition is important, the manner of performance carries far 
greater weight. 

The final decision as to the suitability of an applicant for ac- 
ceptance rests upon the evidence of talent shown rather than 
upon the degree of advancement already attained. Admission is 
limited to those whose inherent musical gift shows promise 
of development to a point of professional quality. 

Applicants in any subject may be asked to show the degree of 
their attainments in sight-reading. A supplementary knowledge 
of the piano, or other medium, and of the theory of music, 
is desirable. 

The auditors are not obliged to hear all that an applicant may 
have in readiness nor to comply with requests for criticism of 
applicants not accepted. 



VOICE 

Applicants shall submit from memory four selections showing 
the character, quality, and personality of voice and singer, of 
which one at least should be in English. They should be chosen 
from the standard operatic and oratorio recitatives and arias; 
German Lieder; Italian songs of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth 
Centuries; French songs (either of the 'Bergerette' type or of 
the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries); English songs of any 
period which have artistic merit. 

Clear diction and accurate pronunciation in one foreign language 
will be considered of higher value than a casual and inaccurate 
use of several.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS — Continued 
Qiialijications for Audition or Examination 

The qualifications for receiving an audition or examination are 
presented here in a general form, allowing latitude in the selec- 
tion of works to be presented. While the choice of composition 
is important, performance carries greater weight. 

The final decision as to the suitability of an applicant for ac- 
ceptance rests upon the evidence of talent shown rather than 
upon the degree of advancement already attained. Admission is 
limited to those whose inherent musical gift shows promise 
of development to a point of professional quality. 

Applicants in any subject may be asked to show the degree of 
their attainments in sight-reading. A knowledge of the piano, 
and of the theory of music, is desirable. 

The auditors are not obliged to hear all that an applicant may 
have in readiness nor to comply with requests for criticism of 
applicants not accepted.

Centuries; French songs (either of the 'Bergerette' type or of 
the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries); English songs of any 
period which have artistic merit. 

Clear diction and accurate pronunciation in one foreign language 
will be considered of higher value than a casual and inaccurate 
use of several .
